“My wife and I love Brussels sprouts and this is our favorite way to prepare them. It's our own creation and so good that I'm amazed I have never seen a similar recipe anywhere. The flavors of the sprouts and the soy sauce seem made for each other. The recipe is quick and so simple that it can be thrown together as a side vegetable any time sprouts are on hand. I always use Tamari soy sauce, but anything you have on hand will do fine. And I always use olive oil, but butter or another vegetable oil would be fine if you prefer.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim Brussels sprouts, removing excess stem and old or damaged outer leaves. Cut sprouts in half length-wise.
  2. Heat olive oil in large skillet over high heat and add sprouts. Stir fry 1 to 2 minutes until sprouts have lightly browned.
  3. Turn heat to low, allow pan to cool for a minute, and then add soy sauce. Add a small amount of water only if all liquid boils off immediately. Cover immediately. Ensure there is enough liquid in the pan to produce some steam to help cook the sprouts.
  4. Allow to steam over low heat until done. Typically 10 minutes, but time will vary depending on size of sprouts and whether you like them al dente or soft.
